Asphalt Pavement User Guide Webinar Series: Asphalt Pavement Mix Designs

Asphalt is commonly thought of as a structural material for roads, airfields, and parking lots, but its durability, smoothness, and flexibility make it suitable for other applications as well. In many areas around the world and across the U.S. asphalt pavements are successfully used for stormwater mitigation, sidewalks, bicycle paths, tennis courts, running tracks, pond liners, and railroad track beds. These specialty uses of asphalt mixtures are the subject of this chapter.

Notes From the Road

  • Proper Lifting

    In our daily lives, both at work and at home, we are always lifting or moving something. Quite often we think that we can lift or move something that is way too heavy or bulky and that is what puts us at a high risk of injury. Back strains and strained muscles are among the most common injuries affecting our work and social lives so it is important to refresh ourselves on how to properly lift objects.

  • Fatigue. You're More Than Just Tired

    People often make light of how little sleep they get; an over-worked, over-tired condition has become the norm for many. But a good night's sleep is not just a novelty, it's a necessity. The effects of fatigue are far-reaching and can have an adverse impact on all areas of our lives.

  • Pinch Points

    Always be mindful of pinch points when working on or near machinery!

  • As Part of National Work Zone Awareness Week, TxDOT Urges Drivers to Stay Alert, Move Over or Slow Down

    In recognition of National Work Zone Awareness Week, April 9-13, the Texas Department of Transportation reminds drivers that every day requires caution when driving through work zones. In 2017, work zone fatalities in Texas increased 9 percent over the previous year, resulting in 199 deaths and 813 serious injuries. With 4 percent of those fatalities being road crew workers, the remaining 96 percent was comprised of motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists.
